CHINESE ENUMERATION BILL. The Amendment Likely to Bi Mcdifi.d at Morrow's Suggestion. Washington, April 4.— Mr. Morrow has Interviewed the members of the Senate Census Committee with reference to the Chinese Enumeration Bill.

The country would practically be no better off than under the present loose system. Hale admitted that it was extremely probable the amendment would be modified as suggested by Morrow. If this is not done there will be a conference on the bill, with the chances very strongly in favor of the friends of the measure securing its passage in almost its original shape, particularly as McKenna will be a member of the Conference Committee.
